JUGS color challenge

Good Morning all, time for another "Just Us Girls" challenge. This week it is colors, I do not always do well with color challenges, I guess that's why it is call " a challenge" :).

For this card I used sizziz brick embossing folder & sizziz flourish die. The flower is made using the spellbinders flower die, the verse is from Our Daily Bread.

You all have a blessed day.

Direct our Hearts

Good Morning all, well this is my second week designing a card for Just Us Girls "JUGS". And the  challenge this week is wood grain.
 I used Recollections heavy duty card stock, the wood grain folder is from sizzix, I pulled out my Spellbinders "Grand vine borders" and inked the leaves with Tim Holtz's antique linen, then added flowers. The scripture is from Our Daily Bread scripture collection #5.

I am also entering this for:
Word Art Wednesday
Sister Act card challenge "anything goes"
Crafty Girls Challenge "anything goes"

Well that is it  for now
God Bless you All

Our Labor is not in Vain

Good Morning all you fabulous bloggers. I do hope your 4th was fabulous. It down poured here in RI, but I still had a great day :).

I created this card for Our Daily Bread challenge "red, white & blue". 
I do love how this turned out, I am finding I love doing CAS cards and love a lot of white. I used Recollections heavy weight card stock, love this for the base, then I used fancy borders and spellbinders stars. The scripture comes from Our Daily Bread "Serve the Lord". The round flag and bling comes from K&Company.

My card from last week won "The shinning the light award" I am so excited, makes me think I am doing a some what good job on creating cards :)

 The verse 1 Co 15:38, Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, I learned early on in my Christian walk that this means more then "Sunday School teachers, choir, or any other ministry of church. It also means the works of love, mercy, the daily grind of life, the raising up of children is a ministry, our job's are a ministry, our enemies are a ministry. Our whole life from the rising of the sun to the going down is a ministry. As long as Christ lives in us we live to labor for HIS kingdom in all that we do or say.

Well that is it for me,  You all have a Blessed Day.

Well Good Morning All.. Guess what! :) Vicki, from " All I Do is Stamp" has asked me to be the quest designer for JUGS, "Just Us Girls". I am so excited.. You need to check her blog out, I am sure many of you know her, she is one stamping lady :).

The challenge is Bird, just let your imagination figure out the rest  :).


I decided to finally use my SU owl punch I bought 4 years ago and never used.  I used cuttle bug embossing folder and found these cute googly eyes at Micheal's. Rarely do I do a fun card, but I had fun making this one.
I know, it is a little cock eyed, I am still learning to use the photo shop on this new program. Wish they just made a book to read through.
Bird.. B is for bird & blue, R is for ribbon,  D is for dots..

Well that is it for me, you all have a blessed weekend.

Happy Birthday

Well it seems the older I get the faster time flies.. The month of June has just flown by me. I see a challenge and begin to think on what I am going to do, then presto, it is 2 weeks later. :)
Well I am on time for this challenge, Our Daily Bread "Birthday".

The flower is from ODB Zinnia,  along with the dies for this set, and the sentiment ODB Birthday Blessings. The embossing folder is from Sizzix as well as the flourish. I used glass beads for the center of the flower.

Well that is it for me. I do hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend..

Thinking Of You

Good Morning my dear blogging friends.  I have been up since 6 am which is crazy since I work second shift and do not go to bed until 1:30 am :). But since I was up so early I got an early start with the Lord just thanking Him for His Mercy & Goodness. I also made this card for Our Daily Bread challenge "single layer".

I am also entering this for Word Art Wednesday, anything goes. 

I used ODB "From me to you" stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day.

Good Morning all. I do hope all of you are having a fabulous weekend!  I created this card for Our Daily Bread color challenge "pink, ivory, tan".

I used the stamp set Faithful Friends from ODB and the embossing folder is from sizzix. I used pink stickles and pink drops.

Friendship: for many a friend is a friend until they do something wrong to them, but  Corinthians 13 say's,
 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

I feel if we follow what the Word say's we will become good friends to others. 

Well that is it for me my friends :)..  Have a Blessed week.

Oh yes, My card from last week for ODB got picked for shining the light.. yahooooo.

Call and He will answer

Good Morning all. 
I created this card for Our Daily Bread challenge "all white". I decided to use this verse from ODB scripture collection 5, Call to ME and I will Answer you Jer 33:3. This verse just gives me great comfort, for I know that He loves me and hears me, God see's all that I go through, all my troubles and He is there with me every second of the way. If I climb the highest Mt. He is there, if I am in the deepest of valley's, HE is there. He is but a breath away. The key is FAITH. Believing HE is and that HE will do all that He say's He will do.  OH How I love the LORD, because He first loved me.

Now white on white is hard to photo (for me anyway). I used Spellbinders and memory box dies, cuttlebug embossing folder.

Well that is it for me, have a wonderful day.

Trust in the Lord

I do hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend! It is Sunny and warm here in RI, "thank goodness."  I have been busy mowing & gardening.. After coming home from church this  morning, I created this card for Our Daily Bread Inspiration challenge.

I used cream and lavender papers, with ODB Scripture collection 6 and used fancy labels 22. I also used MFT daisy die.

Have a Blessed Day

Sight seeing.

Well How are all of you doing?? I spent the day over my girlfriends house, you the one, the artsy crafty one who makes me do things I am not use to. Well I did have a blast making this piece of art.
I told her that as soon as I got home I was going to post it :).  I started out with two stencils by memory box, used spray inks, forgot the names, I stamped this stamp on the burlap but it did not come out good, so we did it again on another piece of cloth and it came out better, I need to learn to take better photos :).  I love the sentiment , "It's not what you look at that matters, but what you see."

This what the little tile looks like up close.
This is the bottom tag. I tell you, my girlfriend has some cool stuff.

Well that is it for me.
God Bless you all and have a wonderful day.
